    Canister

    Well here is the first of what I hope will be a set of 5. One for flour, sugar, coffee, tea and a sugar bowl for the table. This one measures 5" across and 4" high and will be the sugar bowl on the table. They will be all finished with Minwax Antique oil. This one has one coat of oil on now with 2 or 3 more to come. Enjoy.

    Look's good Bernie. Will the whole set be the same size or larger/smaller as you go?
